Default To paint or not to paint.....

I just bought a domelight from Bryan Finley and it was a wonderful tranaction. Now that I have the domelight, im pondering painting it with Krylon Fusion Satin Black for Plastics. THe light is great shape, only thing wrong with it is ythe three bulbs started to discolor the plastic on the inside under lens (you can kinda see it though map light lens). on the outside, i cleaned it well, just a little smudge on gray cover where you hit the button. I'm too particular i guess.

so my question is to paint no not to paint:

I'm thinking you should paint it but I'm thinking that if you paint it I'm afraid it would stand out too much on your lightly colored headliner.

thats where i just bought my paint at, i didnt see any (for plastics anyways) and in regular krylon fusion, all they had was gloss. may take back the black (cause i dont need anywhere else) and get a can of chrome and paint inside under lens
